Overview - Company Day Out Experience with Scenic Flights over Melbourne

Your day starts off with your team arriving at our hangar for their company flying day experience. Our pilots will meet your team at reception and escort them to the private event area within our hangar. 

The experience starts off with a guided tour of the hangar by one of our pilots. Your team will walk around the hangar and explore our helicopters. Guests will also be allowed to sit inside helicopters for photos and we’ll have a pilot on-hand to explain the physics behind how helicopters fly and demonstrate the flight controls to understand how this works in practice.

After the tour of the hangar, the guests can walk onto the tarmac to take photos with the helicopter and the Melbourne City skyline in the background. It's the ideal spot to capture a team photo. Our pilot will then coordinate the safety briefings and organise people into groups of 3 or 4 for their scenic helicopter flight around Melbourne. 

Your team will then board the helicopter and enjoy a helicopter ride around Melbourne City and Port Phillip Bay. As the helicopter takes off, they'll cruise towards the Melbourne CBD. They spot popular landmarks such as the Melbourne Star, Docklands, Eureka Tower and the MCG. The pilot will then cruise along Port Phillip Bay, showcasing spectacular aerial views of the coast. You'll enjoy stunning aerial views of St Kilda, Luna Park, Brighton Beach Boxes and the hidden submarine at the Sandringham Marina before flying back to Essendon.

Once all of the guests have taken a scenic flight, you can host a team presentation or meeting before you end the day. If you've ordered special catering, guests can use this time to enjoy a couple of drinks and food.

Give your employees the opportunity to experience this unique helicopter tour on a corporate day out.
